Eleanor Gudger Replaces Lovgren At Team PKR Pro

Innovative online poker site PKR has just announced the addition of Eleanor ‘Elz442’ Gudger, 31, to its team of online pros, after Sweden’s Sofia Lovgren decided to leave the site to pursue her ‘next big adventure.’
Sofia Lovgren had been a PKR Pro for the past four years and when she joined was the poker room’s first-ever female sponsored pro. As to where the 24 year-old pro will head to next is a matter of speculation, with some suggesting she may have been head hunted by either PokerStars or Full Tilt Poker. In any case, PKR had nothing but good to say about its former pro, with PKR’s Head of Content & PR, Dan ‘Danski’ Grant, commenting:
“Of the more than 20 Team Pros we have been associated with, Sofia has had the greatest impact on our own players, and outside PKR’s walls. Her poker ability and more importantly her loyalty, professionalism, determination and work ethic are the reasons she has done so well, and why new doors have opened for her.”
Taking her place as a member of Team PKR Pro is English professional Eleanor ‘Elz442′ Gudger, whose been playing at the site since 2007. Having won a PKR freeroll tournament for $1, the law graduate has since gone on to become the most successful female tournament player in whole of the site’s history, earning more than $225,000 grinding MTT’s.
Needless to say Eleanor has come a long way since treating poker as a hobby, and said in the last few years the money she’s earned has got to the point where she’s thought’ “well, I really enjoy this and I don’t have to do so much work.”
Eleanor Gudger has also tried her hand at live poker tournaments, and last year made her biggest score after finishing in 6th place at the WSOP $1k Ladies Championships for $27,045. As part of her new duties, Eleanor will represent PKR at the upcoming 45th WSOP in Las Vegas, as well as competing online at her new home. Commenting on her new appointment, Eleanor Gudger, said:
“I’ve always followed the progress of the PKR Team Pros, so part of me has always wanted to be part of that group. These kind of poker sponsorship deals don’t come along very often, so I feel really fortunate to have this opportunity.”
